You just entered real MONSTER page which consists of the two basic parts:
1. on the town itself,
2. on VT-ers and the first European official VT-meeting which took place in Valeggio on 6 - 8 May, 2005: travelogues + General Tips, often with short or no text - part put up for fellow VT-animals due to lack of enough space in travelogues.
Vallegio sul Mincio is a tiny, peaceful and very charming town located among numerous vineyards on a little bit hilly green fields of the Mincio Valley, very close to top attractions: the Garda Lake, city of Verona and Mantova.
This area of northern Italy is famous for wines and Valeggio itself is famous for "Tortellini di Valeggio". The town has many surprisingly good restaurants and a few attractions to visit, not to mention small, hidden little pearls to discover. Although Vallegio was not marked in yellow (interesting point) in my road atlas of Italy I found it interesting place to visit . And it was perfect base location for VT-meeting, more peaceful and less expensive than nearby Verona for sure.
The first European official Virtual Tourist meeting or better say a few meetings took place in Valeggio sul Mincio, Verona and Sommacampagna on 6th - 8th May. Step by step I will put many of pictures on these pages.
My lovely wife Urszula (matcrazy0) and I are very, very lucky to be there and to meet many, many (over 60) fantastic, very interesting, hospitable and wonderful VT-ers :-). Even if I was not able to chat with everyone we enjoyed our time a lot, had tons of good laugh, tasted great food, wine, beer, enjoyed dance etc. etc. Simply... I will become VT-meeting animal soon, I think.
As I had 9 days at all and I drove a car from Poland through Czech Republic and Austria, I surely did a lot of sightseeing in northern Italy and additionaly a little bit in Slovenia and Austria on the way back home.
You can always look at Official webpage of Valeggio sul Mincio in English, German and Italian.
